Synopsis: Ah, the middle school science fair; a place for intelligent, scientific exploration, discovery, engineering, and of course, papier-mâché, baking soda and vinegar volcanoes. But in the “Annual Tri-County Middle School Science Fair,” students are forbidden to create vinegar volcanoes for their science projects. Instead, their teacher, Mrs. Archibald, mandates that they must come up with “a problem” and present a potential solution as their project. Sounds reasonable. But the problem is that Mrs. Archibald has forgotten to be specific when indicating what kind of problems. So the students find problems from their middle school world, which include, name calling, tattletales, baggy clothes and secret crushes.
